S P Mount

Biography

Abandoned on Planet Earth, S. P. Mount never really found his footing among the bizarre species called humankind. However, he eventually become adept at putting one foot in and doing the hokey-pokey, so that today, he might even seem human himself.

Stephan grew up in an orphanage in Scotland with his nose wedged in encyclopaedias. He spent his youth envisaging the world and beyond, until awakening one morn to find wings sprouted. Embarking on a career in worldwide tourism, he fluttered them far and wide.

He pretends to speak numerous languages, having lived in Germany, England, Greece, Dubai and Italy. Currently, he resides in Canada, where he reinvents his life experiences via his writing. While yesterdays inspire him, he combines those experiences with the possibility of tomorrows and a vivid imagination to create his unique prose.

"Together with my Miniature Schnauzer, MacGregor, I dream of living back in Scotland one day - If not... well... then... a villa in Italy will just have to do . . . S'pose . . . "

  • Ignatius Ignoramus, The Ill-Fated on Sep. 08, 2012

    TFR, finally - and anyone else reading will know what that stands for by reading the foreword. How utterly and deliciously ridiculous was this short story. And what a lovely surprise to find it dedicated to myself - although I am not sure at all if I'm proud of being responsible for any author to be able to reach into their inner idiot to produce such a piece of nonsense. While the story is absolutely ludicrous, and no doubt an amusement, I really think children would really like it too, and I could really see illustrations of the highly inventive characters accompanying this story. But what struck me, and for any reader coming to another, more serious Jerriann Law story, was the sheer flow of the writing and the unusual imagination that are beautifully demonstrated here, an indication of how the author's mind's eye can stray across an abyss of imagination with ease and inventiveness This little tale is eloquently written and innately told from the heart of a true born storyteller who rose to a challenge to cater to the nonsensical, Yes, I'm acquainted with the author digitally, but I do not give out full marks SIMPLY for that reason. A very well deserved 5 stars for the quality and for conquering a style that, initially, did not come easy to this writer.
  • Dead Man's Fingers on Sep. 09, 2012

    Familiar with other works of this author, I think this piece was an earlier one. What I find most interesting is her style and word choice, almost foreign to me as a Brit, but I enjoy them, find them quirky. This comes under weird fiction, and most certainly that's what it is. I found the story amusing in that amid everything horrific the characters found themselves, there was time for an obsession with a flying car, a hint of steamy romance as well as the main characters still maintaining a polite demeanour when having tea and cake as if nothing terrible was befalling them at all - which left me wondering if the humour was unintentional as it's not mentioned anywhere. But it certainly made me giggle a few times. With twelve chapters it is a quick, easy and enjoyable read.
  • Shattered Dreams: Poems, Chants and Short Stories on Sep. 11, 2012

    The writings are often conversational and the subject matter controversial; looking at the things that go on around us in everyday life, musing on how the world is today and often hard hitting too with an unabashed honesty and concern for the environment. But beautiful prose and poetry getting the point across that would especially appeal to Christian readers and those with an interest in the Native American spirit. Unusual in its conception, this anthology by these two authors is an eye opener and a delight, and while I have no other knowledge of J D Couch's work, the two have collaborated beautifully here. Kindred native spirits, no doubt.
  • Red Slippers on Sep. 26, 2012

    If I had been a child, this would have been the kind of story that would have set my intrigue going, an inanimate object with some kind of power attached. As usual, I found the author's choice of wording quirky, middle American, but I guess that's only my own European sensibility; being unaccustomed to it. I don't know much about children's choices today, or what age group this might appeal to, so perhaps not best qualified to comment. Endearing and humorous, perhaps with a latter day innocence and written simply enough for an older 'younger' child to follow on their own.
